Niilo spent half the day at home on Saturday, March 6, celebrating his 82nd birthday with family. He ate heartily of pulla (Finnish cardamom bread)made by Joan, shrimp, gardenpotato salad, pulla birthday ‘cake’, ice cream, and orange chocolate sticks – his favorite foods.
Joan enjoyed preparing for the event, and went ahead and had old friends Robin and Pauline over for supper today, very much enjoying the visit. Pauline intends to come again to knit with Joan.
It has been blustery and chilly lately, a little below zero degrees F. Very little snow around Fairbanks!
